PictBridge, Easy-WebPrint EX and Auto Scan Mode are just three of the features included with the Canon Pixma MP272.
Providing affordability and versatility to your home printing, this machine can easily print, scan and copy to a high standard. Whether you’re a first-time printer user, university student or someone looking for a family printer; this machine is ideal.
A print resolution of 4800 x 1200dpi is offered by a model that can help photos appear both detailed and free from grain. Text will appear crisp and sharp thanks to an additional pigment black ink. Combining quality and speed, the MP272 will produce a 10 x 15cm borderless photograph in around 45 seconds.
The Auto Scan Mode is able to automatically sense whether a photo or document is being scanned and then save it using the most appropriate settings.
Photos can be printed directly from a compatible digital camera as a result of the PictBridge connection.
The Pixma range offers home users a stylish and compact machine to carry out a range of printing tasks easily and the MP272 is no different.
A rear-loading paper tray can hold 100 sheets which should suit the demands of the printer user wanting to print with a medium degree of frequency. There is also the added convenience of the paper tray being self-opening, automatically opening to collect your copies and prints.
Another piece of software which will be welcomed by photo printing enthusiasts is Auto Photo Fix II which can correct a wide range of common faults including underexposure.
There’s no wireless connectivity available with the MP272 so the closest you’ll get to printing without the need for a computer is by using PictBridge support and a compatible cable. That lack of wireless printing means that this is unlikely to be the obvious choice for a busy home environment but results are still good enough to satisfy students.
An important consideration will be the purchase price which should represent value for money considering the scanning and copying options from what is a relatively low priced printer.
